Apple introduced a bug in IOS 8.1 that prevents CalorieMinder from working. It just starts up and freezes. Apple has not fixed the bug in 8.1.1 or 8.1.2. We hope they will eventually fix it.
In the meantime, if you want to use CalorieMinder, here is how to run it in Safari:
1) Start Safari and enter the URL "calorieminder.com/c"
2) Enter your username (typically userXXXXX) and password. (Or tap "Forgot your Username or Password?")
3) Tap Log In.
4) Tap the Share icon on bottom of screen (the middle icon)
5) Tap "Add to Home Screen"
You can then run Calorieminder from the new (red) icon on your screen. You will have to enter your username and password.
Important: If you are an existing CalorieMinder user and you get a new iPhone, see this important information.
CalorieMinder is available in iTunes or search for it in the App Store on your iPhone.
CalorieMinder™ is a calorie counter and exercise logger, especially designed for use with your iPhone.
Recent research shows that dieters who record the food that they eat lose twice as much weight. CalorieMinder makes it easy to for you to record your daily food and exercise using your iPhone with no monthly fees.
The user interface has been carefully designed to minimize typing, and is intensely user tested. You can enter each meal in seconds.
The database has over 7000 foods and 32 kinds of exercise. You can add your own custom foods and exercises. You can also record complete meals that can then be accessed with just two taps.
You will get detailed nutrition reports, including calories, fat, carbohydrates, protein, fiber, saturated fat, sodium, potassium, cholesterol, calcium, water etc. You can identify which foods are supplying the most fat, calories, carbs etc. in your diet. You can send reports by email for printing or forwarding. You can see a graph of your weight over time.
CalorieMinder is web-based, so new features and bug fixes will be available regularly without any software updates. No data backup is required. Migration to new devices in the future, such as Android and Blackberry, will be transparent. Network access is required for some operations, but entry of your favorite foods and exercises is cached and can be done while network access is not available.
Food names and units in CalorieMinder are oriented to the USA. (28 grams of biscuits in the U.K. is an ounce of cookies in the US!)
CalorieMinder is not available for iPod Touch, and is not recommended
if your network access is limited.
